  • Description


    I am a single mum of 2 girls aged 14 and 10. I love to cook and entertain and I love adult company. I would like a female volunteer over 25 who has a full driving licence and will be able to help with the girls and a bit of housework in exchange for your own bedroom and your own sitting room. My partner works away from home so i would like someone mature and responsible who could stay with the girls if i am away for a weekend. They would have full access to the car which is open driven over 25.
    I am also keen to learn a new language. You will be mothered in a home from home environment. We have 2 cats also.
    Donegal is a beautiful county with lovely beaches and scenery and a lively pub scene. We are situated in a beautiful little village with shops pubs and restaurants.
